    Dell's Restore/Recovery systems seem to fail quite a bit so if you do get a dell remember to make your own factory image cd , HP I would agree but after 3 - 6 months they charge for customer service .

    I usually stick with HP. All of mine have been great except for the one I'm using right now! :) Could be just the bad one in the batch.

    I think I had compaq as my first computer and it was awful! (That was a long time ago though). :)

    We've had a few Acers too. One was great, but after two years, completely died. I've never owned a Dell but we've used them at work before. Thanks for your answer. Good to consider these options.

    Haha! I like your opening line. Good information to know. Thank you for clarifying that it is cheaper as well. I think that is a major component for many people.

    Good advice for those who can put one together. As far as cost goes, if you compare to a store-bought computer with the same specs, is it more or less expensive to manufacture yourself?

    Anisha- One day, maybe I will switch to a mac. I know they never have any issues! I've been on PC's for so long though- resistant to change!

    Sony is one I haven't tried at all yet, either at home or business. I always wondered if they were reputable. I haven't graduated to windows 8 yet. So far, I'm not fond of it.

    That's an awesome track record that none have failed. You don't hear that often with store-bought pc's. Sad it all comes down to a $3.00 part too!

    I won't laugh- most of mine have been pavilions too! I didn't like Vista, but Iiked 7...an I actually didn't mind XP. I haven't upgraded to 8 yet, mainly because the screen annoys me and I'm not used to it yet. :)
